"We're a' Jock Tamson's bairns"
Rev. John Thomson was the minister in the early 19th century of Duddington Kirk from 1805-1840, a church set at the foot of Arthur's Seat not far from the centre of Edinburgh. The story goes that he was so highly regarded in the parish that even those not members of the Church of Scotland would say, 'We're all Jock Tamson's bairns'. Walter Scott was an elder of the church, and Thomson was a close friend of the painters Turner and Raeburn, and this may well have helped popularise the expression.  Its also reputed that the minister called the members of his congregation "ma bairns"

Lord, Let Glasgow flourish By the preaching of Your Word And the praising of Your Name. - The full Glasgow Motto

."Lord Let Glasgow Flourish by the preaching of Thy Word and the Praising of Thy Name"
is the
 of Glasgow and was inscribed on the bell in Tron Tower in Argyle Street circa 1663
 however it was shortened in the 1960's to the
shorter "Let Glasgow Flourish." 
The shorter motto can be seen as part of the Glasgow Coat of Arms which may be seen
on the side of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall at the top of Buchanan St.
